Interesting that the advert is calling for a Level 3 as well as EYPS - my first response was to ask whether they really understand what EYPS is really all about. But I thought about it for a bit, and remembered the pathways for those with non-related degrees. So I take this to mean that they are discounting those EYPs who do not have a childcare qualification.


Which is an even more interesting concept. :ph34r:


Good luck to those who apply - far too much of a commute for me I'm afraid, but it does sound like a challenging and enjoyable post!
